of the leadership of his party who voted in favor of the bill. eric cantor and kevin mccarthy joined the majority of their party in voting no. boehner did find support from one key republican, paul ryan of wisconsin also voted yes. the main sticking point for republicans, a lack of spending cuts. hours before last night's votes, republicans considered trying to amend the bill from the senate and add additional spending cuts in. the senate made it clear they had no intention of revisiting this idea. so if changes were made that would essentially kill it. before the vote, republicans took to the floor and voiced their concerns. >> there are no spending cuts. we're adding $4 billion a day to the debt. the senate failed in cutting spending. >> i thought we were in a deficit crisis. i thought families were put at risk by this massive debt. what does this do about that? >> it was way past those senators bedtimes, they were blurry eyed when they were reading it we are trying to fill in the gap for where they missed a few things. >> i think it's unreasonable for senator reid to say something they produce

leader mitch mcconnell marshaled the votes, the deal appealed squash by a revolt led by eric cantor. although his remarks were brief, they sent shock waves through his conference, which was already extremely skeptical of the agreement, and perhaps looking for a leader. conservative opposition to the agreement stems from a host of issues, including that the deal does not include any spending cuts, would significantly add to the deficit and raise taxes on those making more than $400,000 a year. while the republicans were meeting earlier today, the congressional budget office came out with its scoring of the bill passed by the senate. another four dollars trillion in deficit spending is what they scored its ad for the next nine years, about $330 billion in additional spending. the senate did not pass any spending cuts. those were pushed down for about two months. that is where we stand now, waiting for the house to come back into session. waiting for the house conference to come back from their meeting. perhaps the leadership will speak to the press. we're ready for that. we spoke to o

to speaker john boehner, majority leader eric cantor, maturity with kevin mccarthy. it's not for this class of 87 freshman, class of 2010 he would be minority leader boehner. these guys came and not beholden by any means to leadership and made it clear from the outset that they were not going to be told to fall into line. the real problem for this republican leadership, but to prove to be the case if ever the democrats regain power is the enforcement tools of yesteryear aren't needed of yesteryear, since earmarks have now been banned, since if the blogosphere you can turn someone into an instant martyr by stripping them of their committee assignments. it's very, very hard to use a stick in addition to a kerry. there's a point in my book i refer to after the debt ceiling fiasco of the summer of 2011 when they come back in another resolution to fund the carpet because the obama administration hadn't passed a budget was coming up. the republican leadership of the ticket and easy vote and in fact the members voted against it. the appropriations committee, which designs continue dissolutions and

, including eric cantor, the number 2 ranking house member, voted against the bill because it doesn't address spending. >> what we're really doing is raising taxes to give the president more money to spend. >> reporter: president obama has promised to work with congress to find more spending cuts in the future. but he urge them not to play politics with the debt limit. >> i will not have another debate with this congress over whether or not they should pay the bills that they have already racked up. >> reporter: treasury secretary timothy geithner has warned congress the country is just a few months away from defaulting on its loans for the first time in u.s. history. >> the consequences for the entire global economy would be catastrophic, far worse than the impact of a "fiscal cliff." >> reporter: but many republican congressmen say the debt limit debate is the last chance for them to secure the deep spending cuts necessary to pay down our nation's debt. the bill now goes to president obama for signature. back to you. >> thank you. >>> our other big story the weather this morning. it could b

the republicans have to say. >> reporter: house majority leader eric cantor and speaker john boehner were meeting with fellow repub scans. neither was too excited, expressing deep concerns. house gop members considering making amendments like adding spending cuts. that would force the bill back to the senate with the deadline bearing down on everyone. the legislation raises revenue by increasing taxes on the affluent but contains almost no spending cuts. it makes the spending cuts permanent for families making less than 450,000 per year and provides another year of unemployment benefits for two million people but payroll taxes are going up. vice president joe biden who negotiated the deal with mitch mcconnell also on the hill trying to get support from house democrats. and the political wrangling is far from over. no matter how this deal turns out both sides headed for major clash by the end of february over whether or not to raise the nation's debt ceiling. at the white house, ed henry, fox news. >> despite a wee hours of the morning fiscal cliff deal in the senate, the house of representatives

it and send it back is what eric cantor and others wanted. the problem with sending it back is there would be no one to send it to. the senate left the building. the house would have gone back and said we're going to keep our apbldz in. what speaker boehner did is join the minority of republicans. he voted, so 85 republicans said yes, but 172 said no. essentially they violated their own unwritten hastert rule and used the majority of democrats to pass this bill. longtime conservatives see it as a rau for the president. >>steve: even in the leadership of the republican party you've got john boehner and paul ryan voting for it. then you've got eric cantor, the majority whip, voting against it. at the core, all the republicans had to hold their nose because they do not as a party like the idea of taxes going up on anybody. now the way it stands is if you are very successful and you make at least $400,000 a year, your taxes are going to go up to about 40%. for everybody watching this program now, your payroll taxes are going up. last year it was about 4.2% exactly, and starting this morning it

consensus. and at the 11th hour, you have eric cantor and kevin mccarthy, the number two and three in the house republican caucus breaking away. but who stands up and stands with boehner? it's ryan. it's ryan, the budget committee chairman. he could have done a lot to come back from the campaign trail and really try to assert himself against boehner. he didn't do that. he was boehner's ally. >> why? >> that really helped boehner at the end. why? because i think ryan long term is just like camp dadave camp. they're talking about the long-term tax reform is going to come on the debt ceiling in 2013 with the budget fight. you're so right on the debt part. but what they want to do now is lock in the rates. that was their argument in the caucus meeting last night. that was their argument on the floor. lock in the bush era rates, do what you can and move on. >> why did they break away from john boehner at the last moment other than it made a hell of a lot of good sense if you're actually conservative ideologically, you don't believe in adding $4 trillion to the national debt? >> i that i

on the house side. speaker boehner voting for the bill. and eric cantor voting against the bill. the house whip voting against the bill and paul ryan voting for the bill. this is a real split. >> it is. it shows the schism and a real good demonstration of why it was so difficult for speaker boehner to negotiate a bigger, grander deal with the president. he was unable to get his own deal through the house a few weeks ago, and the negotiated deal that passed with overwhelming bipartisan support. 89 votes in the senate, didn't get the majority of the republicans in the house to sign on. what you are seeing is the difficulty played out for everyone to see of how difficulty it is for speaker boehner to get these kinds of bills passed through the house. >> quickly, given the schism that you outlined, this is the last day of the 112th congress and tomorrow is the big day for john boehner. how is it looking for them? >> i think it looks fine for him. a lot of grumbling among folks. he allowed everyone to vote their conscious. no one got forced into voting for something they didn't want to. we avoided t

to the tea party. i have bad news for the tea party. and for party president's whether it is eric cantor from virginia, the majority leader in the house, or the president, but neither of them were elected to make all the roles and come to all the decisions. sort of middle ground will live to be found. simpson-bowles does not provide it. i will give you example. they raise the retirement age by a year or two very slowly. the retirement age task ago to 70 or there's no way out on social security. numbers tell us that. it is that simple. at the same time, its only marginally increases the retirement age and creates a new benefit for high stress occupations. 1,722,000 people would qualify, but all experience with these things, whether you are a republican from georgia or a liberal democrat from manhattan, as soon as a law like that gets passed, people become creative in finding ways to qualify. out of the woodwork, all the folks that would qualify. at the end of the david acton & social security age for everybody was truly disabled and let the market take care of its. people in stress occupations
